Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.


Musical riches at the Brigidine School

I just had a wonderful day at the Brigidine School in Windsor. Photographer Alistair Morrison asked me to donate a bit of time to the school to help with their fundraising concert, and today was a day or rehearsals and meeting students and teachers. The school has a wonderful atmosphere, and I’ve worked with an orchestra of beginner violins, 30 budding composers making their own graphic scores, and a couple of very talented youngsters with whom I’ll play duo. Great fun – lots of enthusiasm, and the perfect spirit for music-making.
